Steps to Search for Courses and Register for Courses

If you already know the CRN number(s) for the course(s) you need to register, skip to Register for Courses.

Search for Courses and CRN Number.

  1. Open SeaNet and click on the "Search for Courses".
  2. Choose the term you are trying to register for.
  3. On the next screen you will need to enter your search criteria. Sometimes doing a very detailed search may not turn up what you are looking for. If this is the case, try doing a simple search with just the Subject, Campus, and Course Level.
  4. Once the list of courses appears, look for the course you need and record the CRN number (first column). Is is best to gather all the CRN number of the courses you need to register while you are here.
